Cricketing Cliche 12


Danish Kaneria has bowled virtually through the day, and his performance will certainly be described as "lionhearted". Now, many bowlers have been described in this manner, Anil Kumble being a conspicuous example. There are so many of them, in fact, that it is fair to say that we have a large enough sample size to now proclaim that humans have such hearts too. And so when a lion does something particularly brave, other lions should describe it as "humanhearted", or at least "spin-bowler hearted". If the lion in question has just eaten a spinner, it will be true in more ways than one.
